Why should people get all the goodies during various holidays? What about mans best friend, the dog? I have always loved baking treats for my babies. Yes, I called them my babies. I don’t have children, so all my pets are like my family regardless of if I had children or not. My eldest dog Xander (below), grew up with homemade treats, so naturally anything that went into the oven he automatically thought was his! I can’t tell you how many times I had to pull him away from the open oven door to prevent him from getting burned.
During the holidays I like baking for pets of family and friends. Sometimes I do get a bit carried away with favors and shapes. Xander and Felix don’t seem to mind being the testers, a wagging tail and begging is always a sign it was delicious! When baking for others I always include and would recommend a label on the container that gives the ingredients included in each treat, if multiple variety. This is due to some dog having allergies.
Note: If you’re thinking of baking home made treats it’s important to make sure there are no allergies with any of the pets your baking for. The link provided will take you to a site that is pretty informative of toxic foods to dogs.
I’ll be posting some recipes and pics of my pups favorite home made treats this weekend. 🙂
